Wilfrid Howick Humanitarian Fund

Howick desk

In 1991, in memory of a great humanitarian and through generous donations from the Howick Family, the Cedars Humanitarian Fund was endowed as the Wilfrid Howick Humanitarian Fund.

Through this fund, the Cedars Cancer Foundation at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) is able to provide assistance and resources for cancer patients in financial need. Our MUHC social workers identify which cancer patients and their family require financial assistance. From the rental of equipment for home care to transportation, such as taxis and parking assistance, to home or child care assistance, the Wilfrid Howick Humanitarian Fund allows Cedars to help those most in need.
